    A simple company that gives adequate freedom and flexibility.

    Trainee Journalist (Current Employee)
    Bhopal (India)

    Pros1. Good environment: A nice place to work; colleagues r friendly; u wil not feel too much pressure or any uncomfortable environment.
    2. Standards of working: The quality of English is achievable; it not dat great. so as a copy editor/reporter a basic knowledge will do.
    3. Brand value: That is a big thing. You can proudly say u r with HT. That tag will always give u a boost.

    Cons1. Pay package: This is a bit problem in HT. Because of this talented will not stay much.
    2. Rookies need more support: As a fresher u wl not get a great start. The learning quotient is not much there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore mentoring/support needed to the trainees/freshers.

    Great work culture but should improve remuneration

    Copy Editor (Former Employee)
    Noida (India)

    ProsWorking opportunity with one of the best in print media in the country. It offered a great work environment, good work culture, pleasant co-workers, extremely professional ambience, great support services. There are many cultural activities and all festivals are celebrated in the office. The office environment encourages excelling at your job and performing well.

    ConsIt is not lucrative in terms of compensation. The difference in hierarchy is slight and not very well defined. At times, bosses talk down to juniors exhibiting clout of the brand name of the media house.
